Narcissist’s uses narcissistic supply to regulate his internal environment and seek equilibrium among the communicating vessels of his psychodynamic needs and processes.
Lidija Rangelovska’s Collapsed Source of Narcissistic Supply (CSNS)
Collapsed Pathological Narcissistic Space
Collapsed primary Narcissistic Supply
Auto or self-supply
Collapsed Source of Narcissistic Supply – narcissist seeks more Primary Narcissistic Supply and Auto- or self-supply
Collapsed Primary Narcissistic Supply – offset by more Secondary Narcissistic Supply and Auto- or self-supply
Collapsed Pathological Narcissistic Space – balanced by more Primary Narcissistic Supply
Auto- or self-supply is a regulator tied to schizoid states and involves paranoid/persecutory ideation and delusions
One therapeutic technique would be “anchoring”: re-orienting the narcissist towards self-supply. Rather than resort to fickle and ephemeral external sources of narcissistic supply, the narcissist is taught and encouraged to resort to himself for same: to look forward with excited anticipation to the structured pursuit of hobbies, vocation, traits, skills, and reward-eliciting behaviors. This approach leverages the narcissist’s grandiose solipsism and fantasy of omnipotence to render him emotionally self-sufficient.
The narcissist then resorts to self-delusion. Unable to completely ignore contrarian opinion and data - he transmutes them. Unable to face the dismal failure that he is, the narcissist partially withdraws from reality. To soothe and salve the pain of disillusionment, he administers to his aching soul a mixture of lies, distortions, half-truths and outlandish interpretations of events around him. These solutions can be classified thus:
The Delusional Narrative Solution
The Antisocial Solution
The Paranoid Schizoid Solution
The Paranoid Aggressive (Explosive) Solution
The Masochistic Avoidant Solution
How does the narcissist react when he fails to obtain enough Narcissistic Supply?
Very much as a drug addict would react to the absence of his particular drug. The dwindling or absence of supply is a trauma and the narcissist experiences post-traumatic stress.
